MLB Ejection 160 - Tom Hallion (4; Andy Green)

2B Umpire Tom Hallion ejected Cubs bench coach/acting manager Andy Green (bona fide slide rule interference no-call; QOCY) in the top of the 6th inning of the #Pirates-#Cubs game. With one out and two on (R1, R2), Pirates batter Michael Perez hit a first-pitch sinker from Cubs pitcher Alec Mills on the ground to second baseman Matt Duffy who threw to shortstop Sergio Alcantara as Pirates baserunner Kevin Newman slid, and who threw the ball past first base and out of play. Green was unable to request a manager's challenge due to losing said challenge an inning earlier and Crew Chief reviews for non-HR plays are unavailable prior to the 8th inning. Replays indicate the runner fulfilled the criteria for a bona fide slide criteria, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Cubs were leading, 5-3. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 6-5.

This is Tom Hallion (20)'s 4th ejection of 2021.
Tom Hallion now has 10 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 10).
Crew Chief Tom Hallion now has 7 points in Crew Division (6 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 7).

(3) is able and attempts to remain on the base (except home plate) after completion of the slide [YES];
(4) slides within reach of the base without changing pathway for the purpose of initiating contact with a fielder [YES].
